Enjoying eBooks ~ Getting Started

4,063 views

Published on

In April 2016, we are launching a new eBook and Audiobook Library with our new provider BorrowBox.
The new service will be simpler to use and provide a new range of titles.
Depending upon how a user currently accesses eBooks and Audiobooks (on computers, eReaders or mobile devices), they may need to download a new app to access the service. But many users will not need to change anything apart from visiting a different website to browse and borrow our books.
This is a quick guide to get you started with the new service.
